Fleda -

There are some very strange similarities (coincidences) with your family line and mine. My great-grandfather was born in 1873 in Middlesex County, England (London area) and married a EMILY Louise Moore in 1900 (County of London). They emigrated to Saskatchewan, CANADA in about 1905. My grandmother was born there, the only child of this marriage to my knowledge. Emily died in CANADA in about 1919. John and Beatrice (my grandmother) moved to Detroit, MICHIGAN where John ran a small grocery. He eventually died there.

Any thoughts or additional details?

I have actual marriage certificates for John William Izzard and Emily Louise and John's father John Edward Izzard and Mary Briggs (1851 - County of Middlesex) and also a birth certificate for John William Izzard.

These are as follows:

John Edward IZZARD (full age? - born about 1832) married Mary BRIGGS (full age? - born about 1831) on Nov. 4, 1870 in the Pancras Registration District at the Parish Church (St. Luke's New Kentish Town). John's address was listed as Torriano Cottages and his father was listed as James IZZARD (deceased). Mary's address was listed as Holy Trinity, St. Pancras and her father was listed as John BRIGGS (deceased).

John William IZZARD (son of John Edward and Mary) was born on Aug. 13, 1873 in the Holborn Registration District (Goswell Street sub-district). The address of his birth is listed as 8 Ashby Street, Clerkenwell. John William IZZARD (age 27) later married Emily Louise MOORE (age 23) on Sept. 30, 1900 in the Parish Church in the Parish of Holy Trinity, Grays Inn Road (Registration District of Holborn), County of London. John's address was listed as 87 Gray's Inn Road and his father was listed as John Edward IZZARD
(deceased). Mary's address was also listed as 87 Gray's Inn Road and her father was listed as Henry William MOORE (deceased). One of her witnesses was listed as Beatrice Annie MOORE (a sister perhaps?).

I would love to hear from you and about your potential connection to this Izzard line.
